Adam Curry, President, Mevio
Neha Tiwari, Project Manager of Production, Justin.TV

The Topics:
Google Leaving China

Regarding Google's recent decision to stop censoring search results in China, Paul Thurrott recently wrote a piece characterizing it as "a cold-hearted business decision." Is it really? Isn't Google cutting itself out of one of the largest markets in the world?

Apple Is Sold Out of iPads for Launch Day

Looking to pick up one of Apple's iPads on launch day? You'll have to get creative-or lucky-as the Apple online store is no longer taking reservations for its sold-out stock of launch-day iPads. Is the iPad already a hit?

The Social Networking Cops Are Here

Think you're safe if you post to social networks from home? Think again: A new app called Social Sentry alerts your boss to tweets and posts he might not like, even if you're outside the corporate network. The software can even make a link between different accounts and different user names, in case you try to post using aliases. Is this going too far?

3D is Nice, But Who's Going to Pay For It?

3D-TVs are finally entering the marketplace and cable networks are creating dedicated 3-D channels, but TV sets and accessories are running $3,000. Will people pay that amount?

Microsoft Ignored The Long Tail

Microsoft lags so far behind Google in the search engine market because it didn't acknowledge the long tail, said Yusuf Mehdi, senior vice president of the Online Audience Group for Microsoft Bing at CTIA. It returned queries for popular sites and failed to serve queries with smaller, lesser known resources online.
